“On November 7th, 2008, New Museum staff Chio Flores and Stephanie Pereira gave a presentation at to Al Smith and Hamilton Fish After School Program’s 9-12 year olds. They first described to the students the mission of their museum and talked about contemporary art in general. They presented slides of various artwork and talked about their past and current exhibitions.
We found those students who have been participating in Creativity Express since the Summer ’08 season, were more apt to participate in the group discussions about the slides. They were more confident (than others) to raise their hands, as well as had a larger vocabulary with which to articulate their ideas and opinions about the artwork presented.”-Olga Gazman, Director Computer Resource Centers, City of New York Parks & Recreation
